Monday Open Comments

LOUISIANA, MO. — He’s a hard-core biker with a sensitive soft side. Truly, how many Harley owners do you know who stitch quilts on the side? And have you ever met a HOG lover who makes his quilts out of women’s panties? And let’s not forget this character has his nickname “Shovelhead” tattooed just below the bridge of his cap. Yep, right there on his forehead so you won’t forget his name—as if anyone could forget ol’ Shovelhead.

But back to the panty quilt…

Louis “Shovelhead” Garrett rents out the basement of his mother’s house in Louisiana, Mo. That’s where he crafts his one-of-a-kind quilts. He’s kind of picky with his panties. He’ll accept silk, acetate, nylon, even rayon. But polyester panties need not apply.

“I don’t want them cheap, dollar store, not-sexy-farm-girl panties. I want classy.”

Yup. He’s got classy written all over him. Oh wait, that doesn’t say “classy”.

  1. Congrats to Super Dave! Oh wait, I should not have noticed he was first.

    Good morning anyway. :)

  2. If I had a nickel for every internet ‘alias’ I’ve seen in 10+ yrs named Shovelhead (or any derivative thereof) I could fly us ALL to Hawaii first class!

    A quilt made of pannies? Bizarro!

  3. G’Morning all

    But back to the panty quilt…

    Sure hope he washes them out first. Especially if they’re from biker chicks……

  4. Squawk noted Joplin getting tornado thwacked last night………………..holy MOLY – we all need to send kneemail that way Yall!

  5. I guess he needs to meet up with the “Women’s Foundation” quilt I saw some years back at the Brown. It had bras and girdles all over it.

    Now that we’ve got the wimmins covered, I’m waiting for one made with jock straps.

  6. This is going to be a rough day. Up til after midnight working on my computer problem (still not fixed, so if you get my Pic of the Day, it may not be today…unless I use our other computer before my help gets here, hmmmm). Didn’t get much sleep, Handsome woke me up around 4:30 when he got up, never really fell back asleep.

    I’m liable to be cranky today. Hopefully not with you guys. But I do need to work out this morning. Haven’t done it in a while, and I got a load of wissed off I need to work out of my system.

  7. Obama was in El Paso pushing for immigration reform. He spoke at length about how immigration is good for the United States.

    Maria Shriver has been granted equal time to deliver the rebuttal.

  8. Schwarzenegger took a temporary hit in popularity last week but is making a rebound.

    The International Monetary Fund is looking for a president who knows how to have consensual sex with a maid.

  9. BTW, Schwarzenegger is known as a male chauvinist pig.

    The only thing worse than that is a woman who won’t do what she’s told.

  10. PF/OBH once again stated that he wanted Israel to retreat back to the pre 1967 borders this weekend – and this was at an AIPAC meeting no less. I am reminded of the citations in Revelation:

    Rev 2:9-10

    9 ‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
    NASU
    Rev 3:9
    9 ‘Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie — I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you.
    NASU

    The Jews in NY tend to be extremely liberal and almost always vote D, and support that which is contrary to TORAH; they define themselves as ‘those who say they are Jews but are really not’.
    It absolutely amazes me that PF/OBH was not booed off the stage, tothe contrary, he was applauded. What we are witnessing is the separation of the sheep from the goats; there are those who want to pursue the goals of Y_VH, and those who want to go the other direction. Hang on folks, its gonna be a rough ride.

  11. Well, I see the Rapture DID happen Saturday at 6:00pm and it appears a bunch of you folks didn’t make the “cut” either. At least I won’t be lonely.

    Party on, Garth!

  12. As far as Texpat’s hellish predicament goes….
    Let’s just say that fathers of the brides rarely get all a’ twitter as do mothers of the brides.

  13. Mharper
    (from yesterday)

    (Or am I in trouble for mentioning taunting and banning? Will I be banned for wondering if I’ll be banned?)

    Not by me. I am happily retired and have been put out to moderator pasture. I wanted to start a moderator breeding program but Ms. Squawk mentioned something about gelding if I tried. Now my days are spent under a nice oak tree leaning up against the fence watching the world go by. But I digress.

    TAUNT AWAY

  14. #22 Dave

    Now why does this stike me as being funny?

    For the same reason that I chuckled on seeing the pix of Michelle when her hair came out of its tuck-do in the high winds?

  15. Q. Why did Obama go to Ireland?
    A. To find his Irish roots.
    -> No, he could have done that after he left office.

    A. To suck up to the Irish in hopes of garnering red-haired votes next election cycle?
    -> Partially.

    A. Because he could go for free, on taxpayers’ money?
    -> BINGO!

  16. #20 Shannon

    Let’s just say that fathers of the brides rarely get all a’ twitter as do mothers of the brides.

    So Texpat has come down with a case of “bridal twitter”?

    So, do you have a niece who is getting married? Wouldn’t we have heard about that?

  17. Progressive, moonbatschizzle-crazy, cool-aid drinking, libterdnozzle idiots:

    “If you really want to get to know someone, you don’t ask what’s between their legs,” says Stocker.

    When Storm was born, the couple sent an email to friends and family: “We’ve decided not to share Storm’s sex for now — a tribute to freedom and choice in place of limitation, a stand up to what the world could become in Storm’s lifetime (a more progressive place? …).”

    How much more wacky can “parents” get with their children??

  18. #31: And some day this little I can make my own descisions spoiled brat will be expected to become gainlfully employed by some mean ole business person who will tell him/her it, “we have a policy here, work or get fired and stop that damn crying you little wimp.”

    A fine waste of humanity there.

    On another note. Now that Obama is in Ireland regaining his Irish roots, does this mean his is a Celt and not a black? Just wondering.

  19. Good afternoon Hamsters. Back from the comparative winter (for us) of Colorado Springs and environs. Spouse’s professional society meeting at the Broadmoor outside Colorado Springs went well, and we enjoyed the hospitality of a 5-star hotel. Had never stayed in a place like that and could get used to such good surroundings and service.

    Following the meeting we moved a few miles down the road to the La Quinta–this on our own nickel. A week in almost springtime Colorado was a dash backward to our winter, requiring layers of clothes that constitute winter wear here. Experienced lows in the upper 30s higher up and several episodes of snow flurries on day trips following the meeting; heavy snows up in the mountains reported on the weather news; the cog railway up Pikes Peak could only go halfway up because of heavy snow and winds the day we had reservations (got a partial refund).

    Colorado suffers drought as well, and usual snows in the lower elevations did not come this winter. Grasslands are brown as seen from the air, stock tanks partially filled, trees late leafing out at moderate elevations. Winter flowers still going strong in landscaping. In the high country there’s plenty of snow from winter, and more falls with each new front. Spring thaw has not really begun, and when it does there will likely be flooding. Fire danger is elevated pretty much everywhere near the foothills and higher up. The folks there have heard of the wildfires in Texas and well understand our situation.

    The Broadmoor has a wonderful carriage museum, with rows of elegant harness lining one wall. There’s also an interesting side saddle collection, some saddles missing some parts, and the variety undoubtedly represented many different saddlers. The curator was delighted to have some commentary from someone who rode side saddle and learning the significant differences between riding astride and riding aside.

    Good to be back home to the routine of watering the yard and flowers. Mariposa is very needy and follows us everywhere now that she’s been bailed out of the cattery. Mara is also happy to be home from boarding at the vet clinic. We’re delighted she does not have a tumor in her throat but rather an inflammation of the larynx that’s squeezing the windpipe when she grazes. A course of antibiotics should shrink that.

    Can see we missed a lot being out of the news loop for a week.

  20. #35. I can’t figure out if your avatar is Che Guevara with mouse ears or Roddy McDowall’s Cornelius in “Planet of the Apes”.

  21. #31 Bones

    Yep, those people are insane. Hard to believe in their pic that the little girl with the long braid is actually a boy.

    Will Pyro object to this comment? Probably not, since you can generally tell the gender of Indian boys in spite of hair styles.

  22. #32 Tex-Can

    does this mean his is a Celt and not a black?

    According to Lawrence, think “3M”.

  23. I’ve decided to start shouting BINGO if I am able to claim comment # 42…

    Shouldn’t you shout DOMINO? Otherwise the Hambone Domino Deputy may arrest you for slandering the National Table Game of Texas.

  24. There is a wedding in the future. ’nuff said!

    Are we invited? I’ll buy them a toaster.

  25. Well, I never played dominoes as an adult, and the way we played as kiddos probably did not actually have any rules. So I would be a poseur if I shouted DOMINO now for any reason.

  26. It is good to have Adee back in the fold. Glad you had a vacation into some cool weather.

    Here’s what I read earlier today (emphasis mine):

    Anthony Kennedy joined the four liberal jurists in the decision, while the four conservatives were aghast at the implications.

    LINK

    George W. Bush’s greatest domestic achievement was to provide us two very good judges on the Supreme Court. It is very safe to say that Ruth Bader Ginsgurb will retire during the next term of the sitting president. 2012’s vote is therefore that much more potent. One more conservative judge on the Supreme Court would tip it into that direction. That’s what we need, not Justice Kennedy.

  28. OK….y’all have totally cracked me up today. :)

    I’m waiting for one made with jock straps.

    I would re-think that, my queen……….

  29. #30 mharper42, That’s a good story to perk up the day.

    Y’all recall several posts recently about underwear for squirrels? Well, there were squirrel shorts for sale in the gift shop at Seven Falls park near Colorado Springs. Looked just like the pictures posted on Hambone, ‘cept the tiny shorts were real cloth on a cardboard squirrel figure. They caused much amusement among the visitors. :)

    And electing just any Republican is no guarantee that we’ll get a decent replacement. Why?

    Look at who appointed the Justice you don’t like:

    Reagan nominated Robert Bork first, but the conservative Bork met fierce opposition in the Senate and ultimately failed to win confirmation. Reagan then turned to Douglas Ginsburg, a judge from the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia Circuit. Ginsburg, however, withdrew himself from consideration after only nine days when allegations leaked concerning his past marijuana use. Reagan, on the advice of Meese, finally turned to Kennedy to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Kennedy’s nomination, unlike Reagan’s two previous picks, encountered little resistance. Most observers viewed him favorably and even liberals thought of him as pragmatic and fair-minded. The Senate unanimously confirmed Kennedy on February 3, 1988 and he took the oaths of office a few days later.

    And his Veep didn’t do us any favors either:

    Governor John Sununu promoted Souter to the New Hampshire Supreme Court in 1983. Souter quickly established himself as a knowledgeable jurist and an independent thinker. President Bush appointed Souter to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1990. Justice William J. Brennan retired five months later, however, and Bush decided to move Souter up again. Although Sununu and Rudman denied involvement in Souter’s nomination, Souter’s friendship with both no doubt helped his cause. The ever-unassuming Souter had to be reassured by Rudman that, in light of all the qualified candidates available, an interview with Bush was really necessary. Souter’s nomination passed nearly unopposed through the Senate.

    Your better bet to insure a good SCOTUS appointment is with a Conservative Senate combined with a Prez who is a known quantity.

  31. ST yells “bingo” on 69, as in “O 69″. At least OY she did. She may have a little more control over here in the Hamnster cage.

  32. Good news. Dannie’s attempt to give himself special gun rights is dead in the water.

    “I don’t think it’s good policy for legislators to give themselves a special privilege that other Texans do not have,” Gallego said.

    “I don’t think it’s good policy for legislators to give themselves a special privilege that other Texans do not have,” Gallego said.

    Now that democrat was thinking with his head. Guess i will have to turn 740 on for awhile to listen to the D_n Rantrick radiot commentary about how wrong this is. Where he made his mistake is he did not name it after someone.

  34. DJ and Squawk, well someone has come full circle….Sigh, I’ve known for a long time that one particular Senator was not a friend of the Second Amendment, he talked a good line, but he distrusted the masses with guns (think Baltimore Yankee here). He was all for the CCW because he figured that it would allow people to get a license only after jumping through hoops. When I heard of this nonsense about giving the elected officials special privileges I knew that he had went from being the “Citizen Senator” to one of the “Elite Ruling Class”. SAD INDEED. :sad:

  35. Guess i will have to turn 740 700 KSEV on for awhile to listen to the D_n Rantrick radiot commentary about how wrong this is.

    FIFY :wink:

  36. Oh and DJ, How’s your Baby Girl? Any grandkids yet? People ask me all the time and since the Boy got married Oct 2010, I always say, he’ll more than likely be the first. He loves kids and so does his lovely Bride. Daughter spent so much time in school that she wants to live on her terms for a while.

  37. Yanno’ I’m thinking that JimB might be right, Dave needs to change deodorant. When I show up the crowd leaves! :grin:

  38. You’re doing just fine SD, keep it up! :D

    Yes Senator Dan has changed in many ways. I’m waiting for the day it will go full circle, remember during the property tax fight years he’d have everyone burning up the politicians phone lines? Well Michael Berry when on Houston City Council was the recipient of those phone calls for a time there. The day will come the Berry Brigade will be dispatched to go after our good Senator. And I will laugh.

  39. Well at least GJT has my back. :wink:

    I remember the time that Dan fired G. Gordon Liddy because he said, (Liddy, that is) if the Jack Booted Thugs break down your front door and you’re innocent, shoot for the groin because it will not have any protective body armor. Dan was appalled that Liddy would tell folks to defend their home against an invader. Never mind that the law says that you have every right to defend your home from anyone breaking in illegally, including the police force.

  40. No grandkids yet, SD. They celebrated their 2nd anniversary Sunday. Son-in-law is a very good kid, really a blessing to our family.

    On another note, I’m looking for another pocket pistol. I have a Kel Tec P-11 and it is okay but the trigger pull is very long, about like my SW 686 357. Looking at the Kel Tec PF9 and the Kahr CM9 right now. Any others?

  41. DJ

    Looking at the Kel Tec PF9 and the Kahr CM9 right now. Any others?

    I have 2 Kahr’s a MK 9 & a K9 they’re sweet, double action only, striker cocked and 7 Lbs trigger pull. They’re also some of the thinest autos around, less than 1 inch wide. The Kel Tec’s are inexpensive, (not cheap) polymer framed pistols that are a little rough but a very good buy.

  42. WB, I didn’t know that Desert Eagle made a 380. Interesting. But I want to stick to 9mm so that I only have to worry about one type of ammo. Love my Glock 17 but the 26 is a bit large for my pocket, which is where I like to carry.

  43. #63 wagonburner, Do you own a Desert Eagle? If so you know that they are bad to “stove pipe” if not keep completly clean. They’re neat but way too bulky to carry, he!! my 44 Ruger is more cancelable than a 4 Lb Eagle.

  44. GJT

    Yes Senator Dan has changed in many ways.

    Yes he has. And when Rick Perry discovered it beneficial to have a Senator that owns a radiot station on his side, oliver sudden Senator D_n found himself in some plumb committee assignments.

    I don’t listen to 740 700 (Thanx SuperDave) any longer because people who complain about Rick Perry now get shut down and bad mouthed after they have been hung up on. Used to not be that way. Now instead of discussions how the people should be running Austin we are now treated to “how it works in Austin and we just gotta understand”.

  45. Now instead of discussions how the people should be running Austin we are now treated to “how it works in Austin and we just gotta understand”.

    :(

    I stopped listening to Dan myself a while ago.

  46. Allen West for VP? I’m sold.

    Sure, West is only a first-term congressman. But Americans want an outsider, a Mr. Smith-goes-to-Washington kind of guy. Allen West is just that. He’s a retired Army lieutenant colonel, an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, with as sharp of a mind as there is in Congress. He’s a conservative’s conservative; a tea-party favorite. But he cannot be smeared as a radical kook. He’s from swing state Florida — and Florida, remarkably, has never had a candidate on a national ticket. West is also black (not that it matters, but to some, it does). Far from the liberal caricature, we live in a country where that is, by far, a net gain — especially for a black conservative.

    Allen West speaks with authority like nobody else in politics. Sometimes his rhetoric on his military service can be self-congratulatory, almost Pattonesque. And that’s slightly cliché in some corners of 2011 America. But it’s not insincere. One listens to him speak and it is evident that they are listening to a leader. West is a man for these times.

    Most interestingly — and importantly, to me — West understands the true nature of the Islamist adversary and has not bought into the “cult of counterinsurgency” when it comes to military operations. “We have to get away from occupation, nation-building style warfare,” he said last November. Yes!

    With Daniels Out, GOP’s Best Bet Is …
